The danger of equating speech with violence

Perhaps the most worrying trend among proponents of political correctness is equating words with violence. This philosophy, built on works like Words That Wound, has captured many young minds in a web of moral distortion.

I honestly don’t believe Islam invented algebra — Islamists seem incapable of fundamental logic.
